. >> ian lee, we'll check in with you throughout the hour. >>> the worst protesters were in benghazi, that's where ama basder christopher stevens and three other americans were killed in attacks on the u.s. consulate. she joins us now over the phone. jamano what is the libyan government saying about that attack? >> well, victor, it does seem now this protest was not really a protest about this film, it was more of a planned attack. what we're hearing from libyan government officials is what we initially heard from u.s. officials. this was a preplanned attack by extremist groups, islamist radical groups that operate in the eastern part of the country. yesterday we heard from the president's ruling saying that they now believe it is a preplanned attack by these groups that aim aed to inflict maximum damage on western interest, especially u.s. interest in libya and sabotage libyan and u.s. relations. the libyan government now saying this investigation is its top priority. they have made a number of arrests. they have four people in custody, at least so far, who are being interrogated and they
at the consulate in benghazi. secretary of state hillary clinton was scheduled to testify to congress in a closed intelligence briefing today. it's been suggested the u.s. was warned about that attack in libya three days before it happened. the administration insists they haven't seen intelligence about "significant advanced planning" for that attack. but interestingly the white house is now calling the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi a terrorist attack for the first time. and it happened on the anniversary of 9/11. fancy that. u.s. relations with israel at least on the surface appear to be getting much worse as president obama continues to say he doesn't have time to meet with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. iran continues to march toward nuclear weapons. syria continues to murder its own people. it all suddenly feels much worse than it has for some time. here's the question, how satisfied are you with u.s. policy in the middle east? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile. post a comment. or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. wolf. >> jack, thank you. >>> meanw
to deal with the situation and the killings that happened in benghazi, 24 hours ago now. >> we appreciate you being with us. thank you. the historical context of the national tragedy cannot be understated, the last time a diplomat of this stature was assassinated was 1979, when the u.s. ambassador to afghanistan was killed in a gun battle. the events of yesterday felt similar to the era of weakness that president jimmy carter presided over. on a day when americans hoped to pause in remembrance of the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks, they were instead greeted with the face of a new age of terrorists, even worse, greeted with a president unwilling or unable to confront them. but the violence on september 11, 2012, didn't start libya. it began when radical islamists in egypt who, were outrained over a u.s.-made film that insults muhammad, and burned the american flag and replaced it with one similar to that of al qaeda. the white house issue aid staimentd apologizing to the radicals, saying, quote, the embassy condemns misguided efforts to hurt the religious feelings of muslims. the presi

. a state department staffer apparently died of smoke inhalation after the u.s. consulate in benghazi was set on fire. much of the building was destroyed. >> now, a senior u.s. official say they're on alert throughout the region, fearing that there is more to come. this attack and one in neighboring egypt were set off by a new film critical of the prophet muhammad. >>> now, this was the scene in cairo as hundreds of protestors marched to the u.s. embassy there gathering outside the walls, chanting against the movie and u.s. some managed to scale the embassy high walls, pulling down an american flag and ripping it to shreds. others waved black flags, looking like those of al qaeda. the situation appeared to calm overnight. stay with abc news. our team is following developments in the region. we will continue to update you on "america this morning" and "good morning america." >>> and moving on to smaller and more scaled back ceremonies for those who were tragically killed in the 9/11 terror attacks. here in new york the tribute in light soared to the sky from the site of the original wo
live next door in the benghazi neighborhood say they're sorry. >> what happened here is not representing the libyans, especially not representing our islam. we're not like that. >> we feel shame. we feel shame for what happened. they were here to help us. they helped us and they were helping us and we really need this help. >> reporter: last night a british newspaper, the independent, reported that 48 hours before the attack, the state department had, quote, credible information about possible attacks and ignored it. but the obama administration has flatly denied the accusation and a spokeswoman for the director of national intelligence called it absolutely wrong. she said, quote, we were not aware of any actionable intelligence that an attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi was either planned or imminent. as you heard norah o'donnell say, thee protests across -- these protests across the middle east expected to grow and spread after the friday morning prayers. back to you. >> kristin fisher with the live update from outside the state department this morning. >>> we'r
.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. u.s. officials say lost amid the tragedy and dramatic headlines was the fact that most were not massive protests. but crowds numbering in the hundreds, sometimes in the thousands. >> the mobs we've seen on the outside of these embassies are a small minority. they're the ones who have largely lost in these emerging democratic processes. >> reporter: susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., said the attacks on u.s. targets began as spontaneous protests, rejecting earlier claims they were part of a plot to coincide with last week's anniversary of 9/11. the anti-american protests have fast become the obama administration's most pressing foreign policy crisis. but the white house faces other urgent challenges in the region. on sunday, four u.s. soldiers were killed in afghanistan. the latest in a breakout of insider attacks where afghan forces target nato troops. and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu continued to ratchet pressure on washington to set a red line for iran, claiming iran is months away from being able to build a nuclear bomb. >> i think th
-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. that's the first time the white house has characterized this as a terrorist attack. carney, though, also appears to stand by this comment from wednesday. listen. >> based on the information that we had at the time, and have to this day, we do not have evidence that it was premeditated. >> jamie rubin is former assistant secretary of state. he's currently counselor to new york governor andrew cuomo. let's talk about what seems to be contradictory. you hear from jay carney, you hear from the white house, you hear from the state department, it was a terror attack, but not preplanned. you hear from the prime minister of libya that, in fact, it was preplanned. why disconnect on those two fronts? >> i think a lot of the wording is getting a little confused. i think what the administration is trying to communicate is that they don't believe that, say, six months in advance, a group sat down and said on september 11th we're going to attack the american embassy using this method at this place. but, it does appear that the individuals

in the benghazi area, the ones responsible for killing our ambassador -- >> it took a while. >> it took a couple days. they denounced the attack on the ambassador, and many wrote condolences letters, and i think it could be a tipping point in the right direction. it's not overnight. i am being honest, if you go to twitter and facebook, you see the comments i am getting, never seen muslims from other countries, indonesia and pakistan and the middle east denouncing this. to me we are at a point where perhaps we are about to take a big step. that's what i am hopeful about. >> thanks, i appreciate having the conversation, too. our conversation about this topic struck a cord on social media last night. some of you called me bias, and others said the same for dean. i can't speak for dean, but dean and i are glad we can speak honestly and openly on any other subject. as for me, am i biassed? maybe i am. i think more of us should, at the very least, admit that we might have a bias or prejudice because if you don't allow the possibility it doesn't allow you to grow and learn. how can any of us learn anyt

is stand back. for example, after the attack on the benghazi consulate that the right thing to do is you say nothing because when an american ambassador is killed, that probably indicates that some serious mistake happened. that's a good moment to say nothing and to wait for facts to emerge. this president has a record that is difficult to defend in a lot of respects. job creation, bad, economic growth, too slow. and his foreign policy initiative looks like it is going up in flames. that's the place where mitt romney should go. and of course president obama and his team wake up every morning and say how can we make today be about anything other than that? unfortunately so far they're doing pretty well. >> you know, i think this president has a tremendous record to go out there and tell the american people. stabilizing the economy, 30 months of consecutive job growth, bin laden dead, gadhafi gone, al qaeda weakened. look, we shouldn't run this election on the republican terms. nor should president obama have to respond every time mitt romney makes a mistake and try to prop him up. mitt ro
